Tissue Engineering

Tissue engineering research at Ohio State encompasses many disciplines, applying the principles of engineering and the life sciences to develop biological substitutes to restore or improve tissue function. Analyses of biomaterials, stem cells, growth factors, and microenvironments are creating opportunities to fabricate tissues in the laboratory from combinations of engineered extracellular scaffolds, cells, and biologically active molecules. Engineered tissue has vast implications for craniofacial reconstruction, various respiratory and lung disorders, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and creating bone and soft tissue replacements.
